view web site ›'s insider take:

Backhausen textile company was founded in 1849, and since then its fabrics have graced such venues as the State Opera and Burgtheater as well as the imperial household. The company has amassed a vast inventory of historic fabrics in its warehouse, including Jugendstil and Biedermeier styles, but in keeping with the times, Backhausen also specializes in modern linens, satin damask, tapestry wool, and custom work. If upholstery isn't part of your vacation plan, you can pick up printed handbags and pillow covers in the accessories shop, or browse through an archive of 3,500 sketches of historic textile designs in the Wiener Werkstätte museum located in the basement of the company's first-district flagship.

Open Mondays through Fridays from 9 am to 6:30 pm, and Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm.
